We've said it before and we'll say it again. Seattle's floating homes have some of the best names in the business. From Blue Bobbin to El Niño to Island Otter to Skinnie Minnie, we've seen some great ones. Let's add one more to the list: Piccolo Paradiso.
Asking $485K, Piccolo Paradiso is a 583-square-foot, two-bedroom floating home in Wallingford tucked around the corner from Gas Works Park. This "little paradise" was completely rebuilt in 2015 with a 42.6 x 12 aluminum hull. She boasts a 200 square-foot rooftop deck and eight-foot lower aft deck to take in the Lake Union and Seattle skyline views. Really well maintained deck space as well, prime fireworks-watching spot.
The interiors are updated but haven't lost that sea-worthy charm. A full kitchen with bar seating brings in the comforts of home. There's plenty of space for a living room as well as the lower-level bedroom, with a little leftover for a tiny office. Up the study stairs you'll find the master bedroom, which connects to the deck.
All in all, a really great balance between tiny lake living and modern amenities.
